    Geez this makes it sound like it was a lot more serious than the Oilers were letting us know at the time. Is that just for dramatic effect or was it really that serious? Either way in the end watching him play it’s obvious that he’s fine now.

    That, my friend, is considered modern style.

    and yes, it is ugly.

    If that’s really his house get that shit off of here right now, we don’t need weirdos tracking down our guiding light and making him uncomfortable about being in a Canadian market. Boooo :mad:

    I can't imagine that Connor asked for this documentary to be made. Looks like cringe tv by a team/league grasping at straw to market him. Don't get me wrong obviously they should market their marquee player. But this is a strange thing to make a documentary about.

    It's also weird and creepy someone posting photos of his house and another poster asking for the address.

    I’m not sure the purpose of this thread/documentary. Top players get hurt all the time and make a recovery, where’s their movie? Strange.

    And that house is even stranger

    Well if McDavid can go hard to the net in a meaningless game Gio has the right to go hard defending right? can’t have it both ways!

    The recovery that McDavid has made is incredible. For the sake of hockey, I'm glad he doesn't appear to have lost his speed.

    Oh my, best player in the world suffers major injury that could be career derailing. Completes recovery months sooner than it should be possible because he dedicated a ridiculous amount of time to his recovery and benefited from some good fortune.

    Cool hot take, mod.

    A couple quick hits someone posted in the Oilers thread:

    Oilers spent 4 million on doctors and therapists constructing a proper plan of recovery.
    Tons of different medical opinions, one doctored said he NEEDED surgery and it would be a 2 year recovery timeline.
    Connor spend 10+ hours a day this summer IN THE POOL rehabbing + other stuff

    Right next to MoM restaurant...

    Posting a picture of it doesnt scream privacy given there's probably thousands of posters from edmonton.

    It is a fantastic story and a testament to McDavid and how hard he works. It is also the story of 100 other athletes who have done the work and gotten back in record time from injuries.

    I would bet Crosby worked hard over the last two months, I would bet Tarasenko is working his ass off to get back asap, Suter last season, etc., etc., etc., and this is just in the last nine months.
